Louis Michael Penn, affectionately called “Louie,” was born on September 14, 1985 and passed away suddenly on June 29, 2018 at 32. Louie was known for his deep caring for others, his ability to make others smile and his love for his family, his dogs and his wife-to-be, Jeni Peterson.

Louie loved all sports, but especially his football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the WWE. He played football for the Reynolds Raiders and Linfield College where he was nicknamed “DA GOAT.” Louie is survived by his mother, Marsha Penn, his brother Jason Rigney, his sister Laura Penn, his nieces Nadine and Linnea, his nephew Lucas, and his dog Suzie. Jeni Peterson, although not yet related, was to be his wife in only a few months and was his immediate family, along with Suzie and Fancy - their dogs. He will also be missed by a host of close relatives. Louie was preceded in death by his father, Larry Penn.

Relatives and friends are invited to his viewing on Friday, July 6th from 3 to 7 pm. His service will be held on Saturday, July 7th at 11 a.m. The location: Bateman Carrol funeral home, 520 W. Powell Blvd., Gresham, OR. A reception will be held directly following the service at another location.

The family asks that consideration of the expenses and hardships of his fiance, Jeni Peterson, is of the main concern when considering donations.
